Temple Big Thicket Series
Maxine Johnston, Series Editor
The Big Thicket region has fascinated writers and readers for over 150 years. Efforts to record its character and resources include several exceptional books depicting its legends, social life and culture, and its status as a biological crossroads. The active presence of the Big Thicket National Preserve and its Visitor Center reinforces interest in the Big Thicket.
Each book in the Temple Big Thicket Series is copublished with The Big Thicket Association and with the generous assistance of the T.L.L. Temple Foundation. The series aims to publish new works that expand our knowledge of the natural area and its heritage, and to reprint outstanding works that have continuing interest and importance. The publications in this series help to spread general knowledge of East Texas and the Big Thicket area, both regionally and nationally.
